Pristine Grace

Humble and Obedient
by Scott Richardson
Humble and Obedient

    His death was by free consent.  He that is hanged is accursed of God.  Crucifixion was such a humiliating death.  It was reserved for the scum of the earth, reserved for those who had been forsaken by God and man.  He was mocked, cursed, spit upon, scourged by men, smitten and forsaken of God.  He freely and willingly, without reluctance, gave of Himself.  Scripture teaches that neither God nor man forced Him.  He humbled Himself and became obedient.
